I had my 36 week home appointment with the midwife to make sure my house was okay. In case of emergency the stairs are a bit tight to fit a stretcher down so we talked about bringing the futon down and me birthing in he living room, which I just agreed to because I didn't want to be obstinate or anything, but I think when it all comes down to the wire I'll aim to give birth in my bedroom like last time, where I'm most comfy.
So the baby is engaged and at 36weeks I'm measuring 33.5 weeks, which doesn't suprise me because she feels quite low to me. But the midwife said she's small, which I knew, but she didn't brush it off like it wasn't an issue. At the same time, it wasn't really an issue either, but she counselled me to make sure I'm eating enough. I don't think I am but to tell the truth, I'm not hungry and when I do eat more than a bit it hurts everywhere in my midriff because I don't have much space. I am not having cravings which normally I can interpret to figure out what my needs are.
So I'm going to try REALLY hard to just keep my protein up as high as possible but I'm SO tired of being told how small I am by everyone. I start to question myself and my body wisdom. My daughter was small, my husband and I are not big people, but everytime someone asks me how far along I am and I say 36 weeks they gape at me and say they expected I'd say five months. ARGHHH!! I'm not THAT small!
Anyone else dealing with the "you're too small" thing?

I would have a cow at that, suggesting you ARE going to have to go to the hospital!
The whole point of a HB is to birth where you want.
